About Me

Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

Crackle Paint Technique

Good Morning All.  It's Tuesday, so that means it's my day for the Creative Expressions Design Team project.

So without further ado, here goes.

Paint one of the small MDF plaques with Eco Green Moss Acrylic Paint.  Leave to just about dry.  Paint over the top with a layer of PVA glue.  Dry lightly (it should still be tacky) and paint a layer of Eco Green White Acrylic Paint over the top.  Dry thoroughly with a heat gun until the crackles appear.

Stamp the Christmas Rose with Black Archival Ink and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder.

Paint the leaves with Cosmic Shimmer Watercolours Set 6 (Luscious Greens).  I've used Antique Green and Golden Mint.
Paint the flowers with Cosmic Shimmer Watercolours Set 3 (Brights).  I've used Candy Floss and Rose Hue.  The flower centres have been painted with Yellow Sun and Scarlett Sunset.

Paint around the edges and the back of the frame with Eco Green Black Acrylic Paint.
Paint a Scalloped Studio 490 Art Part Border with White Acrylic Paint and the edges with Black Paint.
Stamp the sentiment with Black Archival Ink and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Glue the border into position and it's finished!

I hope you've enjoyed today's project.  Many thanks for visiting and don't forget, for more ideas using this fab stamp set, visit the Creative Expressions Blog (link on the right) and see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to.

Until next time....
